Your conferences don’t offer childcare??

Posted: March 3, 2012 by Jender in slowness of progress

I was feeling better about being a woman in philosophy because a few conferences are starting to offer child care (or at least help participants find a sitter). A friend in sociology asked if philosophy was still terrible for women, and I proudly said, “well, some conferences now help with child care.” Her mouth dropped, and she exclaimed, “Your conferences DON’T OFFER CHILD CARE?!” I felt really stupid, and realized how far we still have to go.
